Abstract

Amplitude apodization of a telescope's pupil can be used to reduce the diffraction rings (Airy rings) in the PSF to allow high contrast imaging. Rather than achieving this apodization by selectively removing light at the edges of the pupil, we propose to produce the desired apodized pupil by redistributing the pupil's light. This lossless apodization concept can yield a high contrast PSF which allows the efficient detection of Earth-sized planets around stars at 10pc with a 2m visible telescope in space. We review the current status of a JPL-funded study of this concept for the Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF) mission, including a lab experiment and extensive computer simulations.
